The guidance document of the Working Group on Genetic Engineering
of the German Federal Government and the Länder (LAG) provides a
concept for the monitoring of ornamental plants for genetic
modifications with regard to the occurance of unauthorised
genetically modified (GM) petunias on the German market and
worldwide in 2017.
It aims to support,by early monitoring, avoiding the propagation of
large quantities of GM ornamental plants for commercial purposes
and their entry into the market.
